in oregon earlier this week. you know, when i saw on twitter this morning that this had happened, i sunk in my chair, you know. you really can't do justice to what these kids and what these teachers have just experienced the violence, the intensity, the sadness. this is not something that should be normal in our country. this is not something that other countries experience like we do. today is the day for sympathy. today is the day to be with your loved ones to tell people who you're close to how much they mean to you, you know. we have to think about what we're going to do after today, what we're going to do between now and the next major shooting that happens. our decision makers think this is something they can't influence, this is something they think they can't do anything about. the majority of us don't want to see these things continue to happen and live in a country like this. we need to let them know that we want to live in a better country than this. we want -- that we're better than this. you know? it's -- it kills me every time i see this. i try to put it towards more motiva
people who were affected by that tonight with me tonight live after this. and also in the oregon shopping mall shooting. i know exactly what this machine can do. i know exactly what it did to these children. i want you to tell me why you continue to believe that this weapon and the type of weapons like it should be freely available to americans when they are being used for a series, and it accept deem mick now. six of the worst mass shootings in american shootings have occurred since 2007. why you persist in wanting this to be freely available to americans. >> well, automobiles kill more people on our streets than guns do, but we don't say we shouldn't have them because some maniac that is drunk ends up driving a car into a family and killing them. this was a misuse of something by clearly somebody that was mentally unstable. why should then the rest of the country with the hundreds of millions of gunowners in america that didn't do anything wrong with their guns, why are we turning them, as if this was their fault? this is not their fault. this was a maniac in a state that had a lot of g

"the ed show" with ed schultz picks up msnbc's continuing coverage of the sandy hook elementary school shooting right now. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york there are tragedies in life that shake our souls and break our hearts. today the nation experienced one of those tragedies. every american will struggle to come to grips with what happened today in a small community in connecticut. sandy hook elementary school in the small community of about 27,000 residents was the site of a shooting rampage. at this hour, we know 26 people at the school were shot and killed by a lone gunman. 20 of those deceased were children. surviving students and their parents said teachers ordered children to hide in closets. witnesses
've now seen from the last three mass shootings in america, aurora, oregon and now the sandy hook school is the preferred choice of weapon for disturbed young men who want to commit atrocities. the president of the united states has indicated he wants to ban assault weapons like this. what is your view? >> i think we need to ban gun laws that ban people from protecting themselves. all over europe there have been mass murders -- >> you're talking complete and utter -- >> people need to be able to defend themselves to the point of the crime and not for the police to come until after everybody's dead. >> what you said, mr. pratt, the gun deaths in australia and britain, they are 35 people killed a year. your country is 12,000. >> your murder rate is lower than ours, that is true. >> it's 35 against 12,000. >> your violent crime rate -- your violent crime rate is higher than ours, as is the violent crime rate in australia. america is not the wild west that you are depicting. we only have the problem in our cities and unhappily in our schools where people like you have been able to get laws p

, the shopping mall in oregon and now sandy hook, the preferred weapon for young men who want to transfer hundreds of bullets of rapid fire if you have the right magazines. the president has stated he wants to ban weapons like this. what is your view? >> i think we need to ban gun control laws from people who need to protect themselves. the problem is not going to go away if we ban this or that gun. we've tried that. that doesn't work. doesn't work in england. you have mass murders there. the solution is for people to be able to defend themselves at the point of the crime and not wait for 20 minutes for the police come. >> what you just said was an absolute lie. the gun murder rate in countries like britain or germany or australia, they've all suffered massacres many years ago, similar nature, they have 35 people killed a year. your country has 12,000. >> your murder rate is lower than ours that is true. >> lower? 75 against 12,000 in australia. >> violent crime rate is higher than ours as is the violent crime rate in australia. america is not the wild west that you're depicting. we only

home, a soccer tournament in delaware and a mall in oregon. 85 people died in those 14 incidents. many of them make news for a day or two. then they fade. although some incidents are big enough to prompt action a little bit. after the virginia tech massacre, we learned the gunman's history showed he had treated for mental issues for years. in response, then governor tom cain signed new mental health reform into law giving the sate more latitude to commit mentally ill people who pose a danger and commenting $42 million to the state's facility. two years later, the state found no increase in the number of people committed and multiple cuts to the funding. earlier this year, in colorado, an attack exposed how easy it is to purchase ammunition online. the shooter wag able to bypass federal background checks and buy 3,000 rounds for a pair of glock handguns and 300 shotgun shells, a bullet proof vest and a high capacity magazine, all of its over the internet. because holmes had a clean record, the purchases were completely legal. the aurora shooting brought back influence of hollywood and t

our children. the violence we see spreading from shopping malls in oregon to movie theaters in colorado to college campuses in virginia to elementary schools in connecticut. it's being spawned by the toxic brew of a violent popular culture, a growing mental health crisis, and the proliferation of combat-styled weapons. though entrenched special interests are going to try to muddy the cause in the coming days, the cause of this sickening mass shooting like the others is no longer a mystery to common-sense americans, and blessedly, there are more common-sense americans than there are special interests, even if it doesn't always seem that way. i say good luck to the gun lobbyist. good luck to the hollywood lawyer who tries to blunt the righteous anger of millions of parents by hiding behind twisted readings of our bill of rights. our government rightly obsesses day and night on how to prevent the next 9/11 from being launched from a cave in afghanistan or a training base in yemen, but perhaps, just perhaps, now is the time they start obsessing on how to stop the next attack on
officers went in and confronted him or whether, as we saw in the portland, oregon, mall shooting this past week, whether the shooter actually shot himself committing suicide. we know that at least two handguns were found. you know, that takes us back to april 2007 when the shooter at virginia tech, in that case, who killed 32 and wounded 15, also had two handguns. what it does suggest, though, is that this individual went in there with carrying two handguns and perhaps other ammunition. he went in there apparently to confront someone. we're told that confrontation took place in the office of the school and may have spilled out from there. we're still trying to understand the number of victims and the level of injury. >> clint, you know, when we talk about these shootings, first off, they are mentioning that it's happening with a frequency that is absolutely horrifying in temz of the fact that this is something that seems to be recurring, an actual nightmare that keeps happening. in terms of the ages of the students here, this -- up until now most of these shootings have happened on college

, colorado, and oak creaks wisconsin, and portland oregon and other cities and towns wasn't enough, perhaps the slaughter of innocence at sandy hook elementary school will at long last be enough. millions of americans hope that is true. but it's not enough for us to hope. we have to speak up. we have made our voices heard and hold washington accountable for facing up to the epidemic of gun violence in our country. if this moment passes in to memory without action from washington, it will be a stain upon our nation's commitment to protecting the innocence innocent including our children. >> rose: i'm pleased to have mayor bloomberg back at this table. >> thank you for having me. >> rose: on "meet the press" yesterday, at a press conference today you believe that the time is now, that this is the moment to act, and at the same time you are chastising the president for-- i believe the time was a long time ago, the president gave a speech after the massacre in a-- aurora, colorado, saying we have to do something. here we are two years later, another 21,000 people in america killed with guns. we
that the shooter in the mall in oregon was confronted by a legally armed citizen who pointed his gun at the shooter and then decided not to squeeze the trigger because he was afraid of missing and hitting bystanders. he was acting very responsibly. and the next shot that that shooter fired, that the killer fired, was on himself after he was confronted with an armed citizen. so that's actually one example of a responsible gun owner using a gun to save lives. >> well, he actually didn't use the gun. i think the point, dan, unless i'm mistaken. you take it up here. but i don't think any american citizen with a legal gun has ever intervened in a mass shooting, certainly not in the last 30 or 40 years in america. so it seems to be a bit of a myth -- >> actually, they have. >> let dan answer. >> before this evolves into an argument, i mean, as easy as it is to become uninspired by a conversation like this and what your other guest is saying, i just encourage the american public to not lose the sense of inspiration in terms of the change that we have the potential to accomplish. this is not the conversati
, the oregon shopping mall, and now we saw them in an elementary school. they're capable of firing if you have a magazine of 30, 30 bullets in a few seconds or even 100 in less than a minute. and, you know, this, make no bones about this, larry. the guy that went up to that school, adam lanza, he had enough bullets, enough magazines to eliminate the entire school. >> why do we need that? this is a question i have. i mean, i would get rid of the semiautomatic or narrow it down to extremely, extremely narrow stuff. but, again, why do we need these huge magazines? why do we need 100 bullets that sort of thing? why do hunters need that? >> why would a hunter need to have 100 magazine? what do they want to do? take a deer and destroy it completely? is that the sport? is that the fun? i thought hunting was about having one shot, if you're hunting for animals and taking that shot and experiencing your skill as a huntsman. there's no skill in blazing a deer with 100 bullets. there is no sensible reason why you need to have these high-capacity magazines other than for criminals who want to obliterate p
. and the number of victims going back to columbine in 1999 all the way to portland, oregon, at a mall. three people killed there. so the context is just so alarming. senator feinstien, we talk about guns. it often overshadows the debate about mental illness. but in the vein of gun control in this country and presidential leadership, you heard from mayor bloomberg. this is how "the washington post" described the president's leadership back in july. i'm not going to take away your guns, obama promised in september of 2008. however, he advocated closing a loophole that allows for gun purchases without background checks at gun shows and for reinstating the assault weapons ban. obama kept his promises to gun owners but not to gun control advocates. the president signed bills allowing guns in national parks and on amtrak. he has not pushed for the restatement of the assault weapons ban nor closed the gun show loophole. has the president failed to lead? >> i'm not going to comment on that. i can tell you that he is going to have a bill to lead on, because on the first day bill, i'm going to introdu

50 rounds at a shopping center. happy valley, oregon, on tuesday, a mall shooting, and then, of course, newtown on friday. that all happened -- >> two policemen in kansas. >> in one week. in one week. >> we should have a conversation about mental health and how we help people who are clearly at a breaking point, and we can have a conversation about violence in the media, but the commonality of all the events you just described is guns and in many cases illegal guns, and so the conversation that i think americans really want to have right now is what we do to reduce the amount of illegal gun violence in this country. we've done it in new york. this is the safest big city in the country. there are other large cities that are making real inroads against gun violence, but at the local level mayors and governors can't do it without leadership at the federal level, and, again, the passion and the comforting words from the president, they're important, but they're not nearly as important as the kind of leadership that he and congressman larson, his colleagues in congress, need to d
